Brad said he will still be doing work on his personal YouTube channel as well as streaming daily on Twitch, since he no longer has any prior obligations.

We’re sure he’ll be fine because there’s certainly a lot to learn from editing one of the largest YouTube channels on the platform for almost five years.
